LOL, ok I will. if I can figure out how to,

yeah that one is really hard to belt feed. I love black powder shooting. I do a lot of it. think I went thru 7 pounds of black powder last summer. well, that may not be a lot but it is to me.

Nice group.
I have a friend who built two black powder guns. A “Kentucky long Gun” and a pistol. Both I believe .50 Caliber.

I count about 10 shots on that target which tells me you’re a patient man.
I personally don’t have the patience to reload black powder and the frequent cleaning is tedious at best.

My aforementioned friend got a little lax with cleaning and his pistol suffered a small but fatal explosion. (Fatal for the gun that is. He got away with minor cuts on his hand.)
He no longer shoots BP.

Kinda sounds like he didn’t push the Ball against the powder charge. There are powder substitutes that don’t burn as dirty. but I always use BP. but I clean mine up when I am finished usually and swab the bore every second shot.
